Mephistopheles makes a bet with The Lord that he will be able to turn one of his servants, Dr. Goethe felt, even late in life, too intimately bound up with Weimar to discuss in detail his early life there, and he shrank from carrying his biography beyond the year In the following year, in order to gain insight into another side of his calling, he spent four months at Wetzlar, where the imperial law-courts were established. And, again, it was an actual passion—that for Marianne von Willemer, whom he met in and which rekindled in him the lyric fire.

What culture has won from nature will not be surrendered or given up at any price. Tasso, and the edition of the Schriffen in which it was to appear, had still to be completed on his return from Italy; the Romische Elegien, perhaps Notes to Goethes poems. book most Latin of all his works, were published inand the Venetianiscize Epigramme, the result of the second visit to Italy, in But that in my century I am the only person who knows the truth in the difficult science of colours—of that, I say, I am not a little proud, and here I have a consciousness of a superiority to many. During his Italian journey, Goethe formulated a theory of plant metamorphosis in which the archetypal form of the plant is to be found in the leaf — he writes, "from top to bottom a plant is all leaf, united so inseparably with the future bud that one cannot be imagined without the other".

Suicide is considered sinful by Christian doctrine : suicides were denied Christian burial with the bodies often mistreated and dishonoured in various ways; in corollary, the deceased's property and possessions were often confiscated by the Church. Wilhelm Meister is a work of extraordinary variety, ranging from the commonplace realism of the troupe of strolling players to the poetic romanticism of Mignon and the harper; its flashes of intuitive criticism and its weighty apothegms add to its value as a Bildfingsroman in the best sense of that word. Even though it is based on the medieval legend of a man who sold his soul to the devil, it actually treats modern man's sense of alienation and his need to come to terms with the world in which he lives.

But greater works were in preparation. The inevitable love-interest was also not wanting. In 18o8, as we have seen, appeared the first part of Faust, and in it was followed by Die Wahlverwandtschaften. Faust's condition is not only one of intellectual despair, but also one in which his character is transformed into a morally ambivalent libertine, as in his love affair with Gretchen.

But most important, the legend has continued to be the subject of many poems, novels, and dramatic works. Faust became the ur-myth of many figures in the 19th century.
